Westbound lane closure planned in Snoqualmie Pass

— State Department of Transportation officials are planning to close one westbound lane of Snowqualmie Pass on Thursday morning.

The closure, which is expected to cause "minor" delays, will allow road crews to install a new concrete barrier near the snowshed at Milepost 58.

State crews and contractors will close the lane at 8 a.m., officials said. If all goes as planned, it is expected to be reopened at 1 p.m.
